First Day Out- hens and chicks

First Day Out                       8" x 10"               oil on linen panel
I love painting hens and chicks and it's been way too long. The colors and animation they provide while running round the farmyard (or backyard) are endless. These two were actually from a pic I took in Hayden long ago. I did spark up that patch of light behind the two as it gave them a little compositional path to follow. 

Pin It


  1. Your sparking up that patch of light put some magic in your painting - it's just beautiful!

  2. Exciting brushwork, Mary, and great color!

  3. It has been a while since I have been on Blogger! So I looked at all your recent posts. "First Day Out-hens and chicks" is my favorite as I love color!


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you!
